Using your services overseas

The unique feature about the Truphone Service is the ability to be charged local rates for calls in certain identified countries outside Australia. Where you have chosen to purchase a membership package you will be entitled to have access to local tariffs for your SIM in those identified Truphone supported countries and provided you have paid the necessary subscription for this facility, you will be able to make and receive calls on your Truphone SIM at local call rates in those Truphone supported countries. Where Truphone does not have an arrangement with a specific country for the purchasing of local rates, then you may still use your Truphone SIM but this will be on a roaming basis. You may incur additional charges for this roaming ability including for the making and receiving of calls whilst roaming.

We recommend you check whether local tariffs or roaming charges are applicable for the country you intend to use the Service in before you travel to that country. For a full list of Truphone SIM rates please visit our Rate checker.
